  • Patent number: 11356867
    Abstract: A Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) device receives first parameters associated with a user device from a first radio access network (RAN) device. The MEC device performs functions associated with an application being executed by the user device and the MEC device is co-located with the RAN device. The MEC device receives second parameters associated with the user device from a core network device. The MEC device modifies performance of the functions based on the received first and second parameters and provides third parameters associated with the user device to a second RAN device that is co-located with the MEC device for adjusting performance of a network.

  • Patent number: 11337064
    Abstract: A system described herein may provide a technique for enhanced authentication techniques that leverage network-based location determination of UEs, such as mobile telephones or other devices that communicate with a wireless network. For example, a wireless network may monitor, determine, or otherwise maintain information regarding the geographic location of User Equipment (“UEs”) that are associated with the wireless network. Some embodiments may utilize such network-monitored location information to verify that a participant device, associated with a given UE, is located within a particular proximity of the UE when performing an authentication process to receive services or resources.

  • Publication number: 20220131780
    Abstract: A system described herein may provide for the tracking and/or calculating of performance metrics associated with a network by marking traffic and determining performance characteristics of the marked traffic. Such performance characteristics or metrics may include throughput, latency, jitter, and/or other metrics. The marking may be performed on “user” traffic, which may be traffic that is generated or sent via the network by an application or service (e.g., a voice call service, a content streaming service, etc.), as opposed to “synthetic” or “test” traffic, which is traffic that is generated or sent for the purposes of testing performance of the network (e.g., traffic related to a “speed test” or the like).

  • Patent number: 11302175
    Abstract: A system described herein may provide a technique for the network-implemented detection of locations that exhibit excessive density of individuals, and/or for the detection of individuals who do not maintain a minimum level of distance between each other. Location information of one or more User Equipment (“UEs”) may be monitored and compared to policy information to determine that the locations exhibit at least a threshold level of population density. Further, remedial measures may be taken when such situations are detected, such as alerting devices that are located within, or are heading towards, such locations.

  • Patent number: 11290915
    Abstract: A system described herein may provide a technique for adaptive and dynamic beamforming in a radio access network (“RAN”) of a wireless network, based on information received from User Equipment (“UEs”) connected to the RAN, and/or information that can be attributed to UEs and/or users associated with UEs connected to the RAN. For example, a Beam Load Balancing System (“BLBS”) of some embodiments may use such information to identify beams, of one or more base stations, for which a configuration should be modified in order to provide RF connectivity to one or more UEs in a manner that optimizes Quality of Service (“QoS”) provided to the UEs and/or efficiently utilizes network resources.

  • Publication number: 20220060968
    Abstract: A system described herein may provide a technique for the discovery and connection of Mesh Distributed Units (“MDUs”), which may establish a mesh topology and perform wireless backhaul of data between a core network and a User Equipment (“UE”). Multiple MDUs in an MDU network may be connected to establish an MDU route. One or more connected MDUs may broadcast an indication that the MDU is available to connect, one or more performance metrics, or an MDU performance score based on performance metrics. This broadcast may iteratively repeat in order to refine the mesh network topology in an ongoing process.

  • Publication number: 20220053463
    Abstract: A base station may allocate wireless communication resources to configure a synthetic wireless communication signal for use as a radar signal. The synthetic wireless communication signal may be configured according to a wireless communication protocol of a wireless communication network that is associated with the base station. The base station may transmit, from an antenna and toward an area associated with the base station, the synthetic wireless communication signal. The base station may detect a reflected signal that is associated with the synthetic wireless communication signal. The base station may process the reflected signal to generate radar data; and perform an action associated with the radar data and the area.

  • Publication number: 20220053476
    Abstract: A device of a network may receive a session configuration message for an application session associated with an application of a user equipment (UE) that provided the session configuration message. The device of a network may identify, from the session configuration message, a quality of service (QoS) profile for the application session. The device of a network may determine that the application is authorized to use a network slice of the network that satisfies one or more QoS thresholds of the QoS profile. The device of a network may identify resources of the network that can be configured to satisfy the one or more QoS thresholds. The device of a network may instantiate the resources for communication of application data of the application session. Instantiating the resources may enable the UE to communicate the application data via the network slice using the resources.
